    Unhappy opel/vaux corsa amp power source?

    hey... just spent hours dispmantling my corsa trying to get the power lead from the engine to the amp but I cant find anywhere to take the lead from the car interior to the area under the hood/bonnet help?!

    also, my amp only has two set of outputs, if i want to run 2 6x9s and a sub how should i rig it??

    Thanks guys!

    I'm sure Red will post her "this is a car PC forum" spiel.

    Is your car an automatic? Does GM sell that car in the states? What kind of amp? Two sets of output meaning two pairs (4-channel) or two channels?

    Edit: No GM doesn't but that's a cool little car.

    is a fusion four channel amp. i guess i need to wire the speakers in as usual and then wire the sub left + right - ???

    the car is out in the u.s, but i dont know what name it goes by. and its manual. i just cant find anywhere in the metal panel behind the dash area that i can put the amp power cable through.

    if you can't find a suitable location you can drill a hole in the firewall just be sure that if you do this you protect the wire with a gromet to keep from getting a short.

    Excellent use of punctuation, run-on sentences and capitalization.

    There is a rubber grommit in a hole behind the glovebox. Also accessible from behind the windscreen washer tank.
